Bab ad-Debbagh

Bab ad-Debbagh or Bab Debbagh (Arabic: باب الدباغين, lit. 'gate of the tanners') is one of the main eastern gates of the medina (historic walled city) of Marrakesh, Morocco.

The gate is the northernmost of the two eastern gates of the medina. It dates back to around 1126 CE when the Almoravid emir Ali ibn Yusuf built the first walls of the city. Its name means "Gate of the Tanners" and refers to the nearby tanneries which have been present here since the Almoravid period.
